Our news

Lost Format Society was born in 2015 by three Croydon locals who shared a goal to contribute to the development of Croydon as a destination for entertainment and culture and provide a space for all of the community to enjoy. Having worked hard to deal with the loss of our equipment suffered in the Shurgard fire of 2018, we teamed up with Cellar Door to bring a Drive In Cinema to Croydon this summer. After the past four months of lockdown, this was something that we could all look forward to in a way that was safe given the current situation with Coronavirus. We've been delighted to see the response and desire to enjoy this event with 13 sell out screenings with still one week to go.

We've been working hard behind the scenes. However in the past couple of days we've been burdened with unexpected additional costs to those we had already taken on board to mitigate the risks of Coronavirus. In order to deliver a safe event we cannot compromise on these additional measures being imposed on us and for this reason we have sadly been left no choice but to take the decision to cancel the planned events.

We appreciate this will be disappointing news for all of you. The challenges faced by the events and entertainment industry as a result of COVID continue to make life difficult for the industry we operate in particularly given the ever evolving guidance relating to the Coronavirus.

In the meantime, all ticket holders will receive a full refund. Please check your emails (and spam folder) for confirmation of your refund. If you have not received your refund or email please do contact us as we will ensure this is arranged as soon as possible.

We are gutted that we can't proceed but we look forward to returning in the near future.
